Software Deployment Question
Java 7 update 21 - Can't deploy with K1000
Until Java 7 upd17, I used to deploy Java with
msiexec /i "jre1.7.0_17.msi" /qn AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 IEXPLORER=1 JAVAUPDATE=0 JU=0 MOZILLA=1
after uploading the MSI plus CAB in a zip file to the Kbox.
But on Java 7 update 21, that doesn't work anymore.
I also tried:
- jxpiinstall.exe /s /l c:\javalog.txt
- A .BAT file, with the msiexec command inside plus a lot of "taskkill" commands.
ONe thing caught my attention: instead of the old Data1.cab we used to find out along with the MSI installer, we now have DLLs. I wonder if a KACE deployment can recognize non-registered DLLs during the install.
Anyway, I'm totally stumped. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Has anyone managed to deploy Java 7 update 21 through KACE?
Thanks in advance

I have done it do 300+ users but i do it in a script. I installed Java on my computer and went to C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Sun\Java and took everything in there and stuck it on my software server i have for simple installs like this.
Here is my script below:
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "msiexec /i \\yourserver\jre1.7.0_21-c.msi /qb-", 1, True
WshShell.Run "regedit /s \\yourserver\\noupdate.reg"
the registry hack turns off autoupdates. This may not be everyone's cup of tea with deployment but I pretty much use all scripts for installs. I like being able to control more within a VBS
